The Vision Pro Could Soon Support The Apple Pencil

Currently the only devices that support the Apple Pencil are iPads, but that could be about to change if a new report is any indication. If it is, Apple Vision Pro owners could soon be able to use their stylus in a whole new way.

The report, which comes courtesy of unnamed sources speaking with MacRumors, claims that Apple is already testing a future version of the Apple Pencil with the Apple Vision Pro internally.

It’s thought that the functionality would work with drawing apps such as Pixelmator and Apple’s own Freeform.

In terms of how it works, MacRumors suggests that people might be able to write and draw on a flat surface and then have the lines appear in an app on the Apple Vision Pro.

No specific details are known about this project, but one possibility is that users would be able to draw with the Apple Pencil on a desk or another flat surface, and the drawing would appear in the open visionOS app. This would essentially turn a person’s surroundings into a giant canvas, complete with pressure and tilt sensitivity.

An updated Apple Pencil is expected to debut within the next few months alongside new OLED iPad Pro and refreshed iPad Air tablets. It isn’t clear whether this is the Apple Pencil that will work with the Apple Vision Pro, but it’s possible that it could be — and that Apple will add support with the upcoming visionOS 2 software that is expected to be unveiled at WWDC in June.
